China's Ministry of Culture (MoC) has put down a law forbidding people under the age of 18 from playing MMO games that feature Player Killing o.O
The MoC is also putting down legislation that the companies who run these games are to integrate age authentication measures (using their citizen cards so it's not quite just a 'are you over 18? yes/no) into their registration system to help enforce the law.
I guess this could be a discussion article but I'm not really looking for absolutely serious discussion on the issue, more just bringing it to people's attention so they can either say something thoughtful on the whole issue OR just laugh insanely
